The Scouting Report
During the Rox' 2013 season opener, relief pitcher Cole Barlow was in a pickle. The Rox had a three-run lead in the top of the ninth inning, but the Nashua Silver Knights had loaded the bases. Instead of dissolving into a pile of sunflower seeds, Barlow accepted the challenge, reared back, and fired the final pitch of the game—a strikeout that sealed the Brockton win.
Fans can take in more exciting finishes as the Rox face other college ballplayers from across the country in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League. Visitors can also plan trips to the ballpark around special promotions, such as "St. Patrick's Day in July" on July 17 with $1 draft beers.
Visiting fans often have the same question—What is a Rox? The team's name and logo are actually tied to Brockton's history in a different sport: boxing. Legendary pugilists Rocky Marciano and "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler called Brockton their home, and since its inception, the Rox franchise has shared a fighter's spirit. The team used to K-O teams in the Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball, until 2012, when it joined the Futures Collegiate Baseball League. There, the Rox provide a place for college ballplayers to hone their skills during the summer while their dorms molt off the previous semeter's posters.
